Fascinating is one word to describe Greenland: mind-blowing is another. The world’s biggest island and one that extends into the Arctic Circle, sparsely populated Greenland is scenically spectacular with huge icebergs, dramatic fjords, craggy mountains, blue lagoons of meltwater, and quaint, colourful towns. During the brief summer, you can experience 24-hour daylight including the midnight sun, if you travel north of the Arctic Circle; in winter, the Northern Lights regularly puts on one of the greatest shows on Earth. The picturesque capital of Nuuk, with brightly painted waterfront houses, is home to the Greenland National Museum with a fascinating collection of Inuit skin boats, and mummies, and is the country’s economic and cultural centre. An autonomous Danish territory, between the Arctic and North Atlantic oceans, Greenland’s vast interior and varied coastline is largely untouched and can be explored by kayak, on hiking trails, or by husky sledge!
